The Philadelphia Eagles shocked the entire football world on Friday.
On the contrary, Wentz had a joyful message for Hurts as he took to Twitter, “Welcome to the best football city in America brotha!” he wrote.
The pick might not make sense right now, but it will if Wentz gets injured again. He finally played in his first playoff game last season, but got knocked out in the 1st quarter and the offense could do nothing with veteran Josh McCown taking over, who was also playing in his first postseason game of his 17-season career.
The 6′ 2″, 219 lbs Hurts tallied 3,851 yards, 32 touchdowns and eight interceptions during his senior season at Oklahoma and led the Sooners to the College Football Playoff semifinal.
